About FDNY 343 Ride

This fall marks the 15th anniversary of September 11, 2001.  In order to honor the tenth year anniversary of the firefighters who died at the World Trade Center, members of the FDNY rode bicycles one mile for each of the firefighters that were lost that day. Click here for information, in pdf format.

Each member rode 343 miles. The ride started in Montauk Point, N.Y and concluded at The Pentagon in Washington D.C.  It took five days to complete. It was an awesome charity event. FDNY343RIDE raised over $400,000.

Apart from minimal operating costs, all donated proceeds from the ride assisted go directly to help support severely injured veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan that have been protecting the USA. Their lives have been permanently altered due to injuries sustained in the line of duty protecting our great nation and the freedom we so enjoy. 

Other than minimal operating costs, all work done to make this charity operate is purely voluntary. There are no salaries or benefits received. 

Our organization has decided that every 5 years we will duplicate the 343 mile ride. The four years in between we will ride from Ground Zero in Manhattan to Montauk Point, NY to honor our fallen brothers that died on that tragic day, as well as those who have died from illnesses acquired while assisting in the recovery in lower Manhattan. All riders are still required to raise money that goes directly to our wounded heroes coming home from war. This year we ride from Montauk NY to Arlington Virgina, Sept 7-Sept 11.

The volunteer preparation for this event takes countless hours of research and the money needed to organize it continues to grow. We are asking for donations of all sizes and amounts to assist with the process. Your financial help is deeply appreciated. We are a 501(c) (3) Charity organization. All donations are tax deductible.

Checks can be made out to “FDNY 343 RIDE” and mailed to:

Thank you!

We thank all companies, individual sponsors and donors who have so graciously pledged their financial and moral support to help make this truly awesome event happen. All proceeds from the ride go to support injured veterans that have been protecting this country for the past years.
